Stains be Gone! #BleachInYourBest+ $150 Amex GC Giveaway

This is a partnered post with Clorox, but all opinions are my own.
Is there anything more exciting than doing laundry? said no one ever. It’s the worst part of coming home from vacation. Piles and piles of laundry, taunting me as I walk by.  There’s  the sorting, the dividing, the washing, the folding, the drying. It’s a never ending cycle. But worst of all, ever more horrific than the ever ceasing cycle of laundry is the bleaching. I don’t know how many times I have been dressed to run errands, head to church or spend an evening with friends when I decided, “Hey! I’ll put a load of laundry in to wash while I’m gone.” Inevitably, when I add the bleach I miss and spill a few drops on my clothing.  Nothing annoys me more (well, almost nothing) than having Bryan or the kids ask, “What happened to your shirt/pants/shorts/dress?” and look down to see three or four small bleach stains. I’ve ruined more clothing that way!

Gluten Free Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookies Recipe

This is a partnered post with Smuckers. All opinions are my own.

August has been my favorite month this year. I’ve spent a week traveling with my daughter through small towns in Kentucky, tubed down the Chattahoochee river with my family and visited several other states. Since I love to travel, I’ve had a great time.  The one downside of traveling with my daughter is finding food and snacks she can eat.  Having Celiac means we can’t stop at most fast food restaurants and we have to carefully check the menu where ever we go. Because of that, I keep snacks we can all enjoy in the car, like Smuckers Peanut Butter and apples to use as dippers. I also have a super duper delicious gluten free peanut butter chocolate cookie recipe that only has five ingredients. Yes, that’s right, five! These cookies take minutes to whip up and prepare, freeze well and can be shipped off to hungry college students too.  You can change the ingredients around to suit your taste, but this is our favorite version.
